these candidates would handle foreign policy? >> you look at the record of the last four years and say is iran closer to a bomb? yes. is the middle east in tumult? yes. is al qaeda on the run, on its heels? no. >> you said that first we shouldn't not have a time line in afghanistan, then you said we should. now you say maybe or it depends. gwen: and what do we know about the ground game it will take for either one to win in covering the campaign's closing weeks, movie -- molly ball of 9 -- covering the campaign's closing weeks, molly ball of "the atlantic," gloria borger of cnn, susan davis of "u.s.a. today"," and james kitfield of "national journal." >> award-winning reporting and analysis, covering history as it happens. live from our nation's capital, this is "washington week" with gwen ifill. produced in associated with "national journal." corporate funding for "washington week" be provided by -- ♪ >> wherever our trail blazers -- trains divorce, the economy comes to live. norfolk southern. one line, infinity possibilities the >> we know why we're here. to chart a greener path in the air
's not on the top of anyone's mind. even though it was the subject of the final foreign policy debate, which was this week though it feels like it was months ago. at the end it was clear both had a strategy goinging in and it had very little to do with talking about the u.s. foreign policy. >> right. there was the expected clash of world views. romney has been bush -- pushing the idea of american exceptionalism, the very muscular view of foreign policy, pushing, and right down the line , but that romney didn't show up for the debate. he pulled himself very close to president obama's positions on pulling the troops out of afghanistan in 2014, on not introducing military forces into the crisis in syria, on crippling sanctions in iran and it was really stunning. gwen: did the specifics matter or was this about both of them trying to look like the commander fdemeef >> it was a good strategy on romney's part, iroda tulyaganovaly. the public suffered from not having two candidates with two very different inextincts -- instincts on foreign policy, but this is where he has stumbled. whenever he has
. two new things. one is foreign policy magazine has a new article out. it's quite a long article. but there is some things that are absolutely stunning, that this happened on 9/11, and the fbi at some point was sent in to investigate. and then on october 26, 6 weeks later, foreign policy magazine went to the consulate, went to the cia annex. they found a draft of two letters. and letters that they have no idea thisf they were ever, ever sent anywhere. but a draft of two letters that the fbi never picked up when they were there. and two draft, talk about this fact that that day, they saw some member of the bolivian police force across the street in the upstairs, taking pictures inside the compound and they were worried and concerned. why that evidence was not seized by the fbi, i don't know. another thing that happened, david ignatius of the washington post, met with the cia. the cia gave them a timeline as to what happened. this is what is new for me. number 1, it appears that the last two who were killed were not killed until about 5:00 hirt in the morning, which fwaifs another
mourdock, who defeated federer in a foreign policy expert richard lugar and i be senatorial -- in the indiana senate for a primary bid the romney campaign said that they did not reflect his views. the women's votes -- obama has been losing some of the women's vote to rney. >> rebalancing, the first debate not that mr. mourdock said anything -- it is obvious what he was thinking. on the other hand, what he was thinking clearly is that rape much less important than preserving a life, and for a lot of women, saying that rape isn't all that important is a very unfortunate thing. romney has disagreed with them, but he has not taken back the ad he's running for mourdock. >> every time you watch the cable this shows now, you see someone from planned parenthood, or another group pro-abortion or so forth. the obama people are running with this ball, colby. will it have legs? >> i think it will have an impact. it calls attention to paul ryan, who shares the same view that there should be no exception for rape, abortion in case of rape or anything else, excepthat ryan's principled posi
people david ignatius at "the washington post." foreign policy a magazine shows up in benghazi to find documents in the personal documents of ambassador stevens. the fbi had been there but left the evidence in the rubble. >> it is unthinkable. it is a draft cable we don't know if it was ever sent but it does say we have asked the libyans again and again for more security with a patrol in the front in the back of roving patrol, bomb sniffing drugs, ambassadors coming and we have nothing we requested. that is found on the ground october 26? why are to the media up an arms asking again and again at every opportunity? get a straight story. nobody died with watergate or monica lipinski. the president owes the american people and explanation and they should not hide behind a "robust investigation." lou: the fbi left the documents on the ground amid the rubble. >> despite the fact fable told us the mission on the ground there were 10 training camps and benghazi the administrations and acted as a bit was normal we need to change policy. >> and values that recognize truth and honor? >> they nee
documents recovered from the benghazi compound by the foreign policy magazine show that in the early morning hours of september 11, the consulate staff believed they were under surveillance. this person was photographing the inside of the u.s. special mission. and furthermore, this person was part of the police unit sent to protect the mission. this is consistent with online post from sean smith, avid gamer before it was overrun with terrorists. smith was killed. "assuming we don't die tonight we saw one of the police guarding the come pound taking pictures." the classified cable sent to hillary clinton noted by headquarters that the situation on the ground was so dire in the long-term the consulate would take the extreme step of moving in with the cia at the annex which also came under attack on 9/11. >> the conditions on the ground were such that literally the back were up against the wall. they had no options left. >> reservations about the libyan security, escalates violence, rise of demolition central to the classified table sent in mid-august, forshadows the commando style attack. >> i
foreign policy crisis. >> on sunday the israeli government ordered total mobilization. on monday, their armed forces penetrated deeply into egypt and to the vicinity of the suez canal, nearly 100 miles away. and on tuesday, the british and french governments delivered a 12-hour ultimatum to israel and egypt, now followed up by armed attack against egypt. the united states was not consulted in any way about any phase of these actions. nor were we informed of them in advance. >> president eisenhower sounding kind of mad, right? the u.s. had not been informed about the attack ahead of time. because ike had made clear to our allies, to england specifically, that he didn't want another big multi-country conflict in the world. he'd worked with the u.n. to keep that attack from happening. he had made his intentions clear and then england and france just went behind his back and did it anyway and they did it a week before he was facing re-election. >> president dwight d. eisenhower is re-elected to the highest office in the land as world peace faces the greatest crisis since the second w
on the consulate in libya is exhibit a of a failed foreign policy of leading from behind. you could see this coming for months. the people on august 145 had a meeting and said we could not withstand a coordinated attack. >> there is that and all of this sort of alarms or red lights whether it is the attack in june or whatever in terms of yurt. then stage two as to what has happened since then. it was that no one bothered to see this too niece yan guy. there is even more than that. is that the fbi did visit benghazi after the attack sometime and left. but then fast forward to last week, october 26, be foreign policy journalists go in there after people have been walking all over the place and looking at that time and they he recovered documents is that are critical to this investigation. like the fbi didn't even bother. like nobody be even cared that four americans are dead. it is a snap by investigation. four people died. you you wouldn't even see that kind of investigation in a local homicide case. >> i hope the people of the united states who really do care about our national security will unders
night, governor romney agreed with the president. but this is a different set of foreign policy views that he had earlier in the campaign. >> and george, that had been an argument that the obama people had kind of shied away from earlier in the campaign. >> well, that's right. right now, that charge is really an accusation that romney can live with. which is don't believe him, as andrew said, because you might like him. i think people say, look, our last impression of him, this is your closing argument, that this is someone that we can live with. i think the obama attack is buttressing the attack. >> agree? >> i don't agree. if you're paying attention to the policy, it has to worry you that he has bunch of stated policies in his platform, if you start unpacking them, there aren't any details and what he's saying now is totally different than what he is saying now. >> don't people normally state that. >> i don't think he flipped to a policy. i think he's basically just, he's got a thing in writing that my policy is "a." you say "a" is my policy, but it's not. >> but the problem is oba
, columnist of the post. in addition to that, today, foreign policy magazine, which is a well regarded magazine in washington, d.c., long history, they had two people. harold duron barbuh and jerone moulasasa. i'm sorry if i'm not pronouncing that right. they had gone to dubai. dubai based television to the compound to do reporting and they found in the compound stuff that our own f.b.i. didn't find. so at this point, i think that it was jake tapper of abc news wrote there is a drip, drip, drip about this. the administration set themselves up for this by blaming video in the first place. i actually am going to complain. i don't think romney brought this up enough. if he had, other reporters would have paid attention earlier. >> bob: it was smart. they found copy of "new yorker" magazine. >> dana: no, they found a letter from him. >> bob: they did? >> kimberly: you should be concerned. >> dana: dated september 11. >> bob: on the other hand i would like to see how many other consulates around the country and embassy asked for backup help. six weeks prior to the event, which nobody expect
to implement policies as far as foreign policy, health care, jobs. host: we will get a response from barbara comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came would get unemployment wellhe said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one-term proposition. why we are looking to mitt romney -- i was talking before about how romney cut the budget in massachusetts. on a bipartisan basis with 87% legislature and that the same time he cut taxes 19 times. do get -- to get massachusetts democrats to cut
and the nbc/"wall street journal" in late august, the president's approval on foreign policy, 54-40 and, last week, 49-46 and the monmouth poll, 9 point advantage for obama in late set up and now a 1-point advantage last week and you don't want to send people into harm's way without knowing what is on the ground but you can move assets to the conflict and have a c-130 gunship orbiting off of begin gaza, waiting for -- benghazi and a qrf, quick rapid force into position and, have them out there and, the president says he ordered support to be given and, yet, support was not given. there are too many unanswered questions and the administration is stonewalling and the american people have a right to know. it ought to be done outside of the bounds of the political campaign and i applaud governor romney for not pressing the issue in the last debate. there was political advantage to him keeping it focused on the economy but also is good for the country the questions be raised by congress and answered by the president and the president -- >> you said could have, woof, should have in a political cont
any basis and fact in terms of foreign policy. >> what do you make of governor romney today picking up on a line that he basically debuted, if you will, right before the storm and the attention went to that crisis, that he is the candidate of change in this race? >> well, i think that that is a very shallow argument, but the last three days, you're going to see enormous amount of messaging. president obama is the candidate of change. he was four years ago. he is now, changing the policies of the past. he's done that in foreign policy. he's doing this with the economy, with his agenda of creating jobs and more teachers and engineering jobs and the middle class out. he's the candidate of change. governor romney is not. but, look, this is a very close race. this is going to go down to the wire. but i feel confident. i see the battleground states moving our way. but i think it's going to be a long night, tamron, a long night on tuesday. >> governor, it's a great pleasure having you on. i know we will see you that night on some of our coverage, i'm sure. thank you, sir. >>> and we are follo
playing as one of the main foreign policy issues in this 2012 election. that is it for the first segment of the "washington journal." in the second segment, we will look at ohio. and later we will be joined by ohio republican party chairman, bob bennett. ♪ >> first and foremost, we have to create an environment that our small businesses can try. one of the uniqueness on the border that is different from the tax reform needed for the whole nation, we need comprehensive immigration reform. as a trouble the border and i meet with the ranchers, we have a workforce problem because our and for -- our immigration system is broken. we cannot get workers to go back and forth. these problems create an impediment to congress. we have got to move a back-and- forth easily. but now we are not able to do that because of the impediments there by not having an effective comprehensive immigration policy. that becomes an economic issue as well. >> some of the issues have to deal with the issue raised here with regard to being near the border. seasonal work that comes on, and especially being susceptible
the effect of the deadly attack in benghazi because foreign policy before that attack was a clear advantage for the president, but the controversy and contradictory statements coming from the administration has hurt president obama that poll reflects it. jon: there are questions too about how this president is handling the economy. right now only 45% say they approve. 52% disapprove. in october of 2010 i guess, the numbers were slightly lower for the president. i'm sorry, in terms of the disapproval number. 61%. so it is getting better, but still he is not looking too good when it comes to his handling of the economy. >> no and that is the number one issue of this election. so the fact that it is so close and those numbers are so bad for the president, actually a good sign for the president because those numbers are not good. in 2009, president obama mocked republicans. said they're always trying to make this mess and give me the economy and then he took ownership. said, give it to me. i will own the economy. that is the big issue of this election and that is why republicans say at the last
to win them over economic and stewardship and foreign policy get the white nonblue collar. obama campaign baraged ohio with ads. biggest anti-romney ads he's outsourced job to china and he fired me and my wife got cancer and all of that sort of thing. they have seen it in ohio and white noncollege voters in ohio are considerably not likely to support romney than in other states. there are different ohios and he has to gain in different places on different issues and appeals. >> michael you looked deeper in ohio and picked out one county that may be the key to the state of ohio. why and which county. franklin county includes the state capt capt of -- capital of columbus. franklin was a republican stronghold and a solidly republican. and columbus is the fastest growing metroarea in ohio and only one with vast population growth and economic growth. there is it a white collar population there and ohio state university is there and largest state universities in the world and university that tending to be left wing and people with graduate degrees and lot of them can't finted - find jobs these
, on this issue generally in foreign policy, how is that playing out in pennsylvania? guest: there is no doubt that the president had a pretty substantial lead on foreign policy in the polls that have been done. that lead has certainly narrowed to four, five, six points in the polls i looked at just last week. the been gauzy issue has certainly played a pretty significant role in that decline. on been gauzy, it's hard to say exactly how that would play a politically. i do think the administration has a lot to answer for objectively for how they handled it and what the president and vice-president new or did not know when any time and how they responded to the request for security. we do not have time to get in the details of that. typically that would not be decisive. we will not go to the moral question that the caller raised, but in political terms, it's not likely to be decisive, but it's certainly not helpful to the president. it is still in the polls that i have done and others have done largely about the economy. host: this was just a few days ago from politicio. republicans are intrigue
